I've been thinking about getting the new GoPro Hero2.
Can do 60fps at 720p so could get some good slow shots.

I'll have a couple cams for sale soon.

Dogcamsports are pretty good they do a full series of cams from hd bullet type to go pro. They also do full multi cam systems for pip setups that can be controlled via a button or switch for say front with interior and reverse as pip flick the switch and it's rear with front and incar pip they are very easy to setup and the pip box is spot on.

I've used them before on bikes. Good stuff and well priced

I had a thread on my setup before somewhere if you search. Gps on screen etc. very good. Made system myself.

I also use gopro2 now (mostly for skydiving but also on the car). It's amazing quality. Battery life not amazing tho so you'd need USB power to use it in car for any length of time.

I use my iphone 4 & harrys laptimer, the app actually has most tracks on it so once you have finished recording you export it and it overlays the GPS data onto it.

I got it for the wifes car also after she was hit by some daft bint on a country road - insurance went 50/50 as there was no proof. Now, it's pretty cast iron should it happen again. Exact time, gps position, speed, direction, even altitude. Game over.

I use an 'ultra clamp' from Dogcamsport, and an old digi cam. Doesn't record in HD, but it's fine for me...

If you're going to use it for track, most tracks i've been to won't let you use suction, need to be clamped. Just a heads up.
